Dear Department Chair:

The department of chemistry at Smith College has initiated a search for a tenure-track, full-time Assistant or Associate Professor of Chemistry position to begin July 2018. The successful candidate will regularly teach advanced inorganic chemistry as well as general chemistry and may also teach electives and other courses aligning with their area of expertise.  Candidates with expertise in any subfield of inorganic chemistry are encouraged to apply. Additional relevant experience may include postdoctoral research or college-level teaching. A Ph.D. in Chemistry is expected by the time of appointment.

We seek a colleague engaged in learning, developing, and maintaining a dynamic curriculum that is responsive to the needs of Smith’s diverse and talented student body. The Department of Chemistry has state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation, and its faculty is dedicated to active research programs with undergraduate students. The successful candidate is expected to establish an active research program with undergraduate student participation.

Smith College is the largest independent women’s college in the country and is a member of the Five College Consortium with Amherst, Hampshire, and Mount Holyoke Colleges, and the University of Massachusetts.

We are very interested in having a strong pool of candidates, especially those from under-represented groups. We ask for your help in identifying any potential candidates that you may see fitting our criteria. We are including a copy of an advertisement soon to appear in Chemical & Engineering News. We really appreciate you taking the time to consider this request and/or to pass the information along to eligible candidates.
